Finding Your Authentic Voice: Practical Performance Skills for Yoga Teachers
Sunday April 8, 2018
Yogacampus, London UK
In this day-long workshop, suitable for all teachers and teachers-in-training, we will explore vocal and physical theatre techniques to improve your teaching practice. We will also discuss the role of being a yoga teacher and how to express more of your true self with your students in a meaningful way.
Holding space authentically requires strong and receptive presence and this workshop aims to give concrete tools to develop your unique voice. During the day you will have a chance to receive individual feedback on ways to help improve your vocal skills, build awareness of language habits and ways to clarify teaching as well as fun warm-ups and exercises to increase comfort with improvisation and responding to the moment.
Themes will include:
- Body language;
- Instruction through vocal inflection, projection and intonation;
- Effective teaching tools: visual, audio and kinesthetic;
-Improvisation and being present with the students in the room.
Not thoroughly covered in most trainings, these skills are vital to being an effective teacher. This work is appropriate for teachers at any stage in their career. Come prepared to play with your edges and grow your teaching practice.
"The course was good and it is really needed for yoga teachers. Inspirational and more 'actor' practice adds value to people and their communication." - Ann Goodin on Finding Your Authentic Voice: Practical Performance Skills for Yoga Teachers, April 2017
